the second amendment and pass feel good lame administration and others say it is because they oppose obama care and they didn't stop sequestration by giving in to the spin of palosa. and republicans may have lost their way, but it is not because they moved to the left to become nothing more than a calorie free version of democrats, but they forgot to respect and reach out to the people and really make the country work. by the way, it is not the guys in the expensive suits in the corner office with a great view. my wife and i were in boston and went to fenway and america's greatest baseball park and 101 years old and may not be fancy as the newer ones, but it has class and a shrine to america's past time. i took photos to people who was important to the experience as the athletes that get paid millions to be on the field. these guys carry heavy things up and down the stairs for hours. they are on the feet for the entire time and work hard for their money and most people it is a distraction or obstruction to seeing the game. i see those guys and i see what makes america great. people working

. the office headed by an obama administration political appointee. today's attempt by the president, diverting public attention from the white house for a president obama said it himself. because such clarity from this president is still rare, it is worth hearing him say it one more time. >> with this endless parade of distractions and phony scandals, washington has taken its eye off the ball. i'm here to say that this needs to stop. this does not require short-term thinking. it does not require having the same old stale debates. lou: the president says he has a plan to grow in the middle class. but there is barely a hint of new policy claims to achieve growth, all while blaming congress and his republican opponents for gridlock and obstructionism. it has kept him from achieving his agenda. chief correspondent ed henry has more on the president's speech from galesburg, illinois. >> this speech was three minutes longer than his state of the union. at the start of the second term. >> if we just stand by and do nothing, understand that part of our character will be lost. >> at the same illinois l

relationship with the obama administration against the day when israel may have to decide to take military action against the iranian nuclear program. i think if that day comes netanyahu wants to be able to say to obama i did everything you asked me to do on the israeli/palestinian situation. even at great political risk. now i need you and the united states to stand with me and israel in the attack against iran's nuclear program. >> ambassador, if we do, indeed, get to that point and prime minister netanyahu has that type of conversation with the president of the united states, do you feel that the president of the united states will stand with israel at that point? >> i don't know. if i were netanyahu i wouldn't have the conversation till after the israeli air force was over targets in iran. so i wouldn't be asking permission. i'd be telling the president what had happened. that's what israel did in 2007 when they bombed that north korean reactor being built in syria. i think at that point congress is going to need to make itself heard very supportive of israel. i think then obama would

. now i have significant concerns about the obama administration's overbroad incursions into the civil rights of law abiding americans. but at the same time, i have concerns about their unwillingness or inability to connect the dots and to prevent violent acts of terrorism. and until we are presented with a good viable strategy for what to do with terrorists who would work night and day to murder innocent americans, i have a hard time seeing how it is responsible to shut down our detention facilities and send these individuals home where they almost surely would be released and almost surely would return to threaten and kill more americans. that's a question i hope this panel sheds some light on, how we can responsibly proceed in protecting the national security of this country, protecting the men and women of this country who expect as the first responsibility of the federal government that we will keep the nation secure. i look forward to the testimony today on that question. >> thank you. >> i do want to thank senator durbin for having this hearing. i think it's long past time we ta
